Democratic Rep. Pramila Jayapal of Washington said Tuesday that there would be backlash “in the streets” if President Joe Biden agreed to spending cuts to secure an increase in the debt ceiling.
“I think there would be a huge backlash from our entire House Democratic Caucus, certainly the progressives, but also in the streets,” Jayapal told CNN reporter Manu Raju. “You know, I mean, I think it is important that we don’t take steps back from the very strong agenda that the president himself shepherded and led over the last two years.”
Republicans, led by House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, are insisting on spending cuts to accompany any increase in the limit to the national debt, which currently stands at $31.4 trillion, while Democrats have demanded a “clean” debt ceiling increase, with no spending cuts or other legislative items attached.
“We do not legislate through the debt ceiling for this very reason,” Democrat Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez declared, also speaking to reporters.

Doubling down, Jayapal wrote on Twitter, “Republicans SAY they want to use debt ceiling negotiations to reduce the deficit. But they refuse to scale back a bloated defense budget or tax the rich to increase revenues. It’s complete, unbridled hypocrisy.”
